  • When the bread machine has finished the Dough cycle, take the dough out. Knead for 1 minute by hand. Place in an oiled bowl, and turn a few times to coat the surface of the dough. Cover with a damp cloth, and let rise for 15 minutes in a warm place.

  • Dust a 10 x 15 inch baking tray with cornmeal. Roll out dough to fit the pan. Make indentations in the dough with your finger tips. Brush top surface with oil, and cover with a damp cloth. Allow to rise for 30 minutes.

  • Sprinkle with parmesan, rosemary, garlic salt, and mozzarella.

  • Bake at 400 degree F (205 degrees C) for 15 minutes, or until nicely browned. Cool slightly, and cut into squares for serving.

I've made this bread twice now by hand rather than in the bread machine and it turned out fabulous. I find most home-made breads to be very "floury" tasting but this one was moist flavorful and a big hit with my dinner guests. Read More

Overall this was just an okay bread but nothing like the focaccias I've purchased at bakeries. Compared to those this was very dry on the inside. Three cups of flour is probably to blame since the rosemary and tomatoes did not fully drown out the floury taste. I've since tried another recipe that used two cups of flour which worked much better. For what it's worth I do not have a bread machine so I mixed this by hand and cooked it on a pizza stone. Still I doubt that would affect the dryness. Read More

One word of caution: Partially cook the bread BEFORE topping with the mozzarella. The bread did not rise where the cheese was. It looked great smelled wonderful was even tasty but.... was undercooked and did not rise with the cheese. Since the combination of flavors is a definite winner I will try this recipe again with modifications. Read More

I made this both the traditional way (at my in-laws who don't have a bread machine) and at home in my machine. Either way it was delicious! I skipped the garlic and didn't miss it a bit. Read More

This bread with a bowl of soup or salad is a meal in itself. Next time I might cut down on the garlic salt abit or use fresh minced garlic. Read More

This was even better than I thought it would be! If sun-dried tomatoes weren't so dang expensive I'd make it all the time.:) Read More

This has a strong sun-dried tomato flavor and was very good. I accidently added the oil into the bread machine and it didn't make a difference. It was a little lighter than the last time I made a focaccia (perhaps it was the oil). I also used fresh rosemary (2 Tablespoons) and cut the mozzarella to 1/2 cup. Very Good! Read More

My husband and I loved this just the way it was! I seperated it into 6 peices and made round loaves. No changes - couldn't stop eating it! Read More
